Bulletin Blast for May

Youth who begin drinking before age 15 are 4x more likely to develop alcohol dependence compared to those who wait until age 21.

I know a lot of these are about alcohol! We are approaching National Prevention Week and May 21st is the day to focus on underage drinking. This is the season for graduation parties. Maybe if we talk about teen alcohol use enough we’ll eventually get to a point where we won’t need to talk about it. Let’s keep that thought in mind.
